Serves 30 servings | Prep Time 30 min. + chilling | Cook Time 10 minutes/batch

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
Sugar

FILLING:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 to 8 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
Liquid or paste food coloring, optional


In a large bowl, beat the butter, flour and cream. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.



On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2 in. star cookie cutter. Sprinkle tops of cookies with sugar; place on ungreased baking sheets.



Prick each cookie 3-4 times with a fork. Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.



For filling, combine the butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough cream to achieve desired spreading consistency. Tint with food coloring if desired.


Carefully spread filling on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

Notes

I baked these treats for a church tea. The night before, I gave a sample to the folks setting up. They liked the cookies so much, they set aside a few to ensure they'd get some the next day!
